Are You One Of Our Tiny Tims?


We are looking for a child aged 9+ (and under 4’6”) to play one of our Tiny Tims in the 2021/2022 revival of A Christmas Carol. This one role will be shared between four children. In this production, the role of Tiny Tim is played by a disabled child so applicants without a disability will not be considered. Please note that any access requirements will be discussed at point of submission. Tiny Tim is nine years old and has the extraordinary power to melt Scrooge’s (and the audience’s) heart.


Previous acting experience preferable but not essential. Must be available for rehearsals and performances from Monday 04 October 2021 to Saturday 08 January 2022 inclusive. It would be preferable if you reside within an hour’s commute of The Old Vic. Auditions will take place over the next few weeks — please apply as soon as possible. Please also share this with anyone who might know suitable children for this exciting project.


Please email to apply, with TINY TIM in the subject line. Please give us the child’s name, the name and contact details of a parent or guardian, a recent photograph or headshot of the child, and tell us a little bit about the child and their interests. Please specify at point of application if the child has any access needs that we need to be aware of in order to facilitate an audition.

Deadline to apply: Friday 06 August 2021
